36th Annual Porsche L.A. Lit and Toy Show Coming March 2
Massive gathering of Porsche memorabilia, toys, literature, parts, and more promises to be better than ever in 2019.
Fans of Porsche automobiles have more than their fair share of incredible shows to attend each year. But while events like the Rennsport Reunion and Luftgekühlt provide us with plenty of exotic and rare machines to drool over, what about the other side of Porsche collecting? We’re talking about toys, memorabilia, and literature, and you won’t find a better showcase for all that than the annual L.A. Lit and Toy show.
This year marks the 36th such gathering. And as always, it’ll feature hundreds of vendor tables stuffed with thousands of unique Porsche collectibles, all under one roof. And it all goes down March 2 at the Airport Hilton near the Los Angeles International Airport. Public entry beings at 9 a.m. for a mere $10. Early birds wanting dibs on the rarest items can enter with the vendors at 7 a.m. for $30.
Judging by last year’s turnout, showing up early might not be such a bad idea, either. Several “holy grail” collectibles were sold at last year’s Lit and Toy show. They included sterling silver Porsche 356 models given to winning drivers and rare Nardi ashtrays wearing Porsche logos. They’re joined by countless pieces of artwork, toy models, and loads of parts.
Those looking to get the full-on Porsche experience are also able to participate in a variety of organized shop tours the week of the event. Bus tours leave from the LAX Hilton each day from February 28 through March 2, visiting legendary shops like Emory Motorsports and Pelican Parts. You can find more information on the tours and how to sign up here.
All-in-all, the 36th annual L.A. Lit and Toy show is shaping up to be a can’t-miss event for any Porsche fan. Even if you aren’t necessarily in the market to buy anything, we’re betting you’ll find at least one thing to take home!
